High-frequency oscillatory ventilation, partial liquid ventilation, or conventional mechanical ventilation in newborn piglets with saline lavage-induced acute lung injury. A comparison of gas-exchange efficacy and lung histomorphology.


It has been reported that, in diseased lungs, either partial liquid ventilation (PLV) or high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) can improve oxygenation better and with less lung injury than conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV). This study was intended as a preclinical comparison between the effects of HFOV, PLV and CMV on gas exchange, lung… (More)
